Re: post-commit from web gets old revision number

In case anyone is curious: we solved it.

And, as most people probably guessed, it was a permission problem.

My post-commit script gathered information into a file, and then sent
that file. Yes, the script called a C program to su to do the work,
but ...

When I committed as root (for which I *should* be committed) then the
program that su's to an appropriate permission didn't su, and it
created a file belonged to root. So, when my co-worker committed
later from a different interface, and the su worked, it didn't have
permission to write over the file that was written as root. So the
old file got sent.

I hope that makes sense.

Everything is working great now.

Thank you.

Marilyn Davis
